Dusit Thani Maldives, a luxury resort on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, picked up four prestigious awards at the 2019 edition of the Dusit International Leadership Workshop, an annual conference arranged by Dusit to share best practices within the group and recognise the achievements of its various hotels and resorts worldwide.
Alongside awards for “Highest ReviewPro Key Indicators” and “The Highest Profit Growth (Owned Hotel),” the resort also received the prestigious “Hotel Of The Year 2018” accolade for the second time, together with its sister property, Dusit Thani Guam. This accolade is awarded to the best performing hotels within the Dusit group based on a variety of criteria evaluated over the year, including Employee Opinion Survey results and highest average room rates.
Mr Ishaaq Idrees, F&B supervisor (The Market Restaurant), Dusit Thani Maldives, was recognised for his exceptional performance, innovative ideas, and personalised service by receiving the “Outstanding Business Contribution Award.” This accolade is awarded to employees who demonstrate exemplary behaviour in implementing Dusit’s Vision, Mission and Values.
With his friendly nature, ‘can do’ attitude, and willingness to always help others, Mr Idrees has played a key role in delighting guests at The Market Restaurant and enhancing service delivery. In 2018, the restaurant’s ReviewPro score reached an impressive 91.6%.
